Direct quote from Gromov: "Two Ukrainian citizens have been detained in Kyiv having been found in possession of photos of the capital’s railway infrastructure. A woman who had photographs of roadblocks has been detained in the Shevchenkivskyi district. A man suspected of collaborating with militants from the so-called L/DPR [‘Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics’] has been detained in the Dniprovskyi district."

Details: According to a representative of the General Staff, Russia is not giving up on its plans to seize Ukrainian territory and disrupt arms supplies, but the Defence Forces "are acting consistently and coherently".

Background:

  • In early June Oleksii Kuleba, the head of the Kyiv Oblast Military Administration, said that curfew enforcement would be stepped up in Kyiv Oblast because sabotage groups were operating in the region and the threat of provocations persisted.
